Summary
This rich compendium brings together selected key essays on the fundamental concepts and policy issues of English domestic commercial law by Professor Sir Roy Goode QC. Professor Goode is one of the most influential commercial law scholars of the last half-century and his works, which include deep analysis of previously unexplored issues, are characterized by an ability to express the most complex ideas in language of crystal clarity. The essays are grouped thematically into sections, each accompanied by an introduction from the author which sets the essays in their historical and modern context. This valuable authorial insight illuminates the way the law has developed since, and often as a result of, the publication of the papers. Further new material, written especially for this volume, includes a new essay 'Res Cogitans: Food for Thought'. Spanning a career of over fifty years, these innovative and forward-thinking essays broke new ground at the time of their orginal publication and continue to influence decisions and legal thinking to this day, both in the UK and abroad. --
